God will reward or punish every person for what that person has done.
Some people, by always continuing to do good, live for God's glory, for honor, and for life that has no end. God will give them life forever.
But other people are selfish. They refuse to follow truth and, instead, follow evil. God will give them his punishment and anger.
He will give trouble and suffering to everyone who does evil -- to the Jews first and also to those who are not Jews.
But he will give glory, honor, and peace to everyone who does good -- to the Jews first and also to those who are not Jews.
For God judges all people in the same way.
People who do not have the law and who are sinners will be lost, although they do not have the law. And, in the same way, those who have the law and are sinners will be judged by the law.
Hearing the law does not make people right with God. It is those who obey the law who will be right with him.
(Those who are not Jews do not have the law, but when they freely do what the law commands, they are the law for themselves. This is true even though they do not have the law.
They show that in their hearts they know what is right and wrong, just as the law commands. And they show this by their consciences. Sometimes their thoughts tell them they did wrong, and sometimes their thoughts tell them they did right.)
All these things will happen on the day when God, through Christ Jesus, will judge people's secret thoughts. The Good News that I preach says this.
